Kia Sportage: Fuel Delivery System / Fuel pressure test (low pressure system)

Kia Sportage QL (2015-2019) Service Manual / Engine Control / Fuel System / Fuel Delivery System / Fuel pressure test (low pressure system)

Fuel Pressure Test (Low pressure system)
1.
Release the residual pressure in fuel line.
(Refer to the Fuel Delivery System - Inspection - "Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line").
  
When removing the fuel pump fuse, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may occur. Delete the code with the KDS/GDS after completion of “Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line” work.
2.
Install the Special Service Tool (SST).
(1)
Disconnect the fuel feed tube from the delivery pipe.
  
There may be some residual pressure even after “Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line” work, so cover the hose connection with a shop towel to prevent residual fuel from spilling out before disconnecting any fuel connection.
(2)
Install the special service tool for measuring the fuel pressure in between the fuel feed tube and the fuel delivery pipe (Refer to the figure below).
For 09353-C1000

For 0K353-D4100

3.
Inspect fuel leakage on connections among the low fuel feed tube, the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump, and the SST components with IG ON.
4.
Measure Fuel Pressure.
(1)
Start the engine and measure the fuel pressure at idle.
Fuel Pressure: Over 290 kPa (Over 2.9 bar, Over 2.95 kgf/cm², Over 42.06 psi)
  
If the fuel pressure differs from the standard value, repair or replace the related part (Refer to the table below).

(2)
Stop the engine, and then check for the change in the fuel pressure gauge reading.
Standard Value: The gauge reading should hold for about 5 minutes after the engine stops
  
If the gauge reading should not be held, repair or replace the related part (Refer to the table below).

5.
Release the residual pressure in fuel line.
(Refer to the Fuel Delivery System - Repair Procedures - "Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line").
  
When removing the fuel pump fuse, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may occur. Delete the code with the KDS/GDS after completion of “Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line” work.
6.
Test End
(1)
Remove the Special Service Tool (SST) from the low pressure fuel feed tube and the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump.
(2)
Connect the low pressure fuel feed tube and the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump.
